Djokovic demolishes Murray for sixth Australian Open title
Text size Aa Aa

A straight sets victory over Andy Murray on Sunday has earned World Number One Novak Djokovic his sixth Australian Open title.

Defending champion Djokovic demolished the Scotsman 6-1 7-5 7-6 (7-3) to match Roy Emerson’s record of six Australian Open titles. It took the Serb just two hours and 53 minutes to finish the job.

The second-seeded Briton, 28, was left heartbroken again at Melbourne Park. This was Murray’s fifth loss in five Australian Open finals and his fourth against Djokovic.

Murray said he would be heading straight back to the UK, where his wife Kim is due to give birth to the couple’s first child.

Djokovic, 28, meanwhile is celebrating another milestone. The Australian Open Win means he has claimed his 11th Grand Slam title, to match the totals of Rod Laver and Bjorn Borg.
